Easter Fun

The beans were planted
(If you're unfamiliar with our tradition, click here)

And harvested
The baskets were filled (thank you Mr. Easter Bunny)

the children were delighted

For the first time, they had stuffed bunnies in their baskets. They were very excited about the new addition to their baskets. Bella's is named "Cadbury" (after mommy's pet bunny growing up), Sofie's is named "Strawberry Shortcake", and Reed's is named "Blue Bunny" (after the ice cream, yum!)Bella and her friend conjured up a plan to leave a note for the Easter Bunny requesting an egg hunt all over the house. She was, however, disappointed to hear that the Easter Bunny could not write her a note back. I had to explain that unlike Santa, or the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny is an animal, and how on earth could he write with those giant paws? She didn't care the next morning when she and her siblings had 50 candy-filled eggs to find. Thanks Jeff, just what the kids need. More candy. Couldn't you fill them with trail mix?

Reed LOVED egg hunts!
After church we enjoyed a fabulous dinner and dessert with Grandma Susan, Jane, Aaron & kids.
We hope you all had a great Easter weekend, filled with family, friends, and a remembrance of the reason for the holiday.

what an adorable family picture. The Easter bunny goes all out for your kids. Don't tell mine. He wasn't that generous at our house.
